Annual Conference-Virtual Future: what are the ethical dimensions of using emerging technologies in clinical trials and research

29.01.2013 - 30.01.2013 All day

The focus of the 2013 Annual Conference will be the possibilities and pitfalls of emerging technologies in clinical care, trials and research.

The new digital technologies are now part of our lives. They are shaping and changing our health care and research.  We recognise there is already a large literature on this subject but it’s clear that these technologies raise important ethical questions that we must address. For Ethics Committees the fear of the new must not be grounds for unwarranted hostility or even unfavourable review.

Our conference will focus on:

  • the importance of researching these interventions before implementation
  • the use of these technologies in research
